Garden State Film Festival, April 2 – 5

Posted on Updated on

Thank you, New Jersey!!!

garden-state-film-festival2You have chosen – wisely.  We know New Jersey folks have been waiting patiently for the premiere of  “the one” – that one great film – the film to solve all of the problems of our current times.  THREE-FIFTY is not that film but it’s in your festival anyway.  Yeah!  Trust us, screening THREE-FIFTY will take the Garden State and it’s  Film Festival to new heights of, ummm –  well, insanity and laughter.  This movie will complete you.

The Garden State Film Festival  will screen THREE-FIFTY sometime between April 2 – 5.  Check here for specific day and time updates.

The artistic philosophy of the Garden State Film Festival is rooted in the celebration of the independent film genre and the creation of a forum where local and other independent filmmakers can exhibit their work.  We would be those “others”.

Since 2003, such industry notables such as Glenn Close, Frank Vincent, Batman producer Michael Uslan, Austin Pendleton, Kurtwood Smith, James Gandolfini, Budd Schulberg and others have lent their support.  And now, those celebrities can say they’ve supported the same festival that screened Maurice Chauvet’s THREE-FIFTY — that hilarious tale of late fees, privacy rights and the easy availability of deeply personal details of your life.  We know they’ve been waiting to be included in the same paragraph with us.

Tallgrass Film Festival

Posted on Updated on

One of the great beauties of the state of Kansas is the prarie grasses that grow along highways and when you’re lucky – in open fields.  Prarie grasses smell a little like hay – sweet, salty, and a little woody, all at the same time.  The sound of the wind blowing through them is a soft hello.  They are full of the subtlest color distinctions of greens and golds and everything in between.  They wave in the wind with a softness that beckons you to lay down in them and when you give in to that call, the reward is as cushy as a down comforter.  A little closer to the ground — but soft and cushy.

Kansas is where I grew up, as many of you know.  And so we are very proud to let you know that THREE-FIFTY will be in the Tallgrass Film Festival.  I can smell the grasses right now!  October 23-26 is the date and Wichita, Kansas is the place.

More love from France…
